I stumbled across titles of two other Mantan movies...
Mantan Messes Up (1946) and
Mantan Runs For Mayor (1947)

According to AFI, both have a notice in them, yet I could not find a registration for either. Both appear to be pd candidates. Others might know of other information. Now to locate a copy.

Tkanks, OB. There may be a chance "Mantan Messes Up" is or was on VHS or DVD, because it's been rated by 7 IMDB users. As for "Mantan Runs for Mayor" and "Mr Washington Goes to Town," I'd say the chances are slim to none.

A further check turned up TCM has "Mantan Messes Up," but nobody sells it on DVD. (sigh)

Found another....."One Dark Night" aka "Night Club Girl" dated 1939. According to IMDB the "film is believed lost, please check your attic." The film has not been registered that I could find, though I would not put a ton of effort into finding a copy.

Thanks again, OB. Sadly the chances of finding these all-back, so-called race films grow less and less each year.

Almost certainly another lost cause.

Searched the AFI database for Mantan Moreland and came up with 100+ hits. Removing the titles already mentioned in this thread, what's left is in the attached file.

Thanks, OB! A few of these look like they might be possible - not probable but at least possible. Some of the regestered and un-regestered titles listed I know have never been released on VHS or DVD. I'll play closer attention to your list soon as I can. At the moment I'm up to my eyeballs in real world crap.
